Subject: The Last Long mile
A rousing marching song from WW1. I have a copy that I obtained many years ago. I never expected to find it posted on the web. The song is from a stage show, "Toot! Toot!". It is also labeled as Plattsburg Marching song, 1917, written by Emil Breitenfeld, and sung by Charles Hart and the Shannon Four. The B side of the record is K-K-K-Katy (stammering song) performed by Billy Murray, listed as a comic song with orchestra. Written by Geoffrey O'Hara.
I have a large collection of WW1 songs which once in a while, I'll crank up my Victrola and listen to.

Subject: WWI Jody?
A Jody is a marching song. Sung on the march, it can even make marching enjoyable. Sometimes. Modern Jodies tend to have a little more bite. Still, this sounds like the sort of song soldiers could march to.
